From the recording Distant Thunder
The five o’clock whistle is mournful and low
Reminding, as usual, that it’s time to go
But workin’ don’t cause me the blues that I feel
It’s the long night-time hours that seem so unreal
My only friends are the night lights I’ve known for so long
I tried so hard with her; where did I go wrong?
I just could not hold her; his pull was too strong
Does down go back up? She was here; now she’s gone
Is there love after her? Is there meaning for me?
Will I know again the joy love can bring?
Is there love after her? Is love meant for me?
Please help me see; is there love after her?
There’s no one to go to; there’s nobody home
It’s been this way for way too long
If just once more, I could hold baby near
I’d put on a happy face to hide all these tears
Lord, please help me see; is there love after her?
